My wife's employer donated a huge (HUGE) amount of money to this a couple of years ago. I think that they are supported pretty much entirely by donations. If they get any government money, I think its minimal.

Glad you mentioned "employer" as our company will usually match most donations made by an employee. Thanks I will inquire about that, this way HMH would get double the bucks.

Maybe Mrs. Parker is gonna bring some change, since she currently serves on the Board of Directors of the museum.

Here's the problem with your rationale, XodoX - if people "barely take advantage of" the fine institutions in the Museum District, but they exist entirely/mostly on private funding, then it's obvious there is considerable support for them.

Best of all, you don't have any of the "I DONT WANT NUNNA MUH TAX DOLLERS GOIN TO THAT" people saying anything, because they have nothing to say at all. Unless they're even more ignorant than the norm and assume they're publicly funded for no good reason other than (ostensibly) that they're open to the public. Then they're easy to set straight.

a lot of people don't even know there's a Holocaust museum in Houston.
Well for what it's worth to add this, the museum gives many many tours to organizations and a lot of those are high schools.

And I notice it's getting free exposure on a popular Internet forum too, which is none too bad either.
